Will Smith’s ex wife, Sheree Fletcher, took to Instagram to share that Will’s dad, Willard Carrol Smith Sr., has passed away.
“We’re gonna miss you Daddio!” she captioned a throwback photo. “You lived & played by your own rules… you truly were 1 of a kind! You instilled discipline and a work ethic that has created a legacy in your honor!”
As of this writing, Will has yet to comment publicly on his father’s passing.
In the throwback photo, Will & Sheree’s 23-year-old son Trey, stands between his dad and his late grandfather.
We're gonna miss you Daddio! You lived & played by your own rules…you truly were 1 of a kind! You instilled discipline, and a work ethic that has created a legacy in your honor!
